The Quest for an Agile HR Organization

Wednesday 3:20pm - 3:50pm, Agile Day (Agile Room)

As the world we live in becomes increasingly global, the pace of change is increasing faster and

It’s no longer about getting a process or structure that is about Agile, but developing people centered competencies within the organisation that help enable individuals to respond to change.

The new competitive advantage is speed to market, with quality. Departments outside of IT are striving to better support the wider organisation in a more responsive manner.

Many teams outside of IT, have heard Agile buzz words used such as Scrum, XP, Kanban, Sprint etc but have no real understanding of what they mean.

Dan Teo spent most of 2015 working with two of NZ’s largest organisations, Spark and Westpac, helping
their human resources adopt Agile Practices.

The talk shares the journey and battle scars that Teo and his colleagues faced as a team over the year.

He will delve into the real stories that led to “ah-ha” moments and will translate practices that were traditionally used in Software Development to solve challenging and complex issues within the HR functions.
